Sky... again

It looks great. I love the logo animation. A couple of points that aren't really criticisms, but maybe something to think about: the shade of blue makes everything feel very vibrant. I think this might only be jarring to me because it's only slightly different to the shade used now but makes a massive impact. The TOTH wipes seem a bit patriotic also (although others may disagree).

The other thing is the size of the lower thirds, but I understand it's just the style of your design. I always try to keep L3s to a certain size really - but I suppose it's just personal opinion. I suppose compared to the current L3s they're about the same, just one block as opposed to the white bar underneath the ticker.

New Sky channels: Crime, Comedy, Documentaries, Nature

Agree with the comments about rebranding Pick to be a Sky channel. Seems a much smarter move to put out a quality free product to promote your brand rather than a channel like Pick filled with nothing. Sky have an absolute tonne of quality programming they could fill it with without damaging their pay offering.

Just for the sake of it..

The Steph Show

Having stuck with it, it isn't the worst daytime show I've ever watched.

I hate the branding. Hate it. From the name - whoever thought of that, to the awful Dickinson's Real Deal music and the graphics.
We had a money matters segment, followed by a Channel 4 News update, which I kind of feel is where they should focus the rest of the show to, playing to Steph's strengths. It feels strange to bring someone in from BBC News to get them hosting a celebrity chat show. Especially when said celebrities are Keith Lemon and Anton du Beke on Skype. (I'm not suggesting they should have been there in person by the way, just that Skype makes it feel even more awful.)

Dare I say, I feel they should have modeled the show on the ill-fated Megyn Kelly Today in the U.S. More news and human interest focused, with consumer segments, but geared as a daytime TV show.

EDIT: I'd like to add that I understand the show was rushed on air incredibly quickly, but surely they're matching the content for what they had in mind for the eventual launch?

Good Morning Britain in 2020

They've confirmed Susanna is back in the studio tomorrow. Going to be interesting if they can justify having the newsreader role back when they'll never be able to accommodate as many people on the desk or justify having four presenters including Lorraine when they should be functioning a skeleton operation.

Therefore maybe Susanna will start at 6, with Piers joining at 6.30 and Lorraine replacing Susanna at 9.

It does seem Piers and Charlotte are sat closer together this morning so maybe they've measured it out so that the newsreader would have room to sit at the end of the desk.


Charlotte could even sit at the 6am desk Penny Smith style, although she'd then just be sat in the corner of the studio for a couple of minutes of the show, which is quite a lot less prominence than she has sat at the desk.

Good Morning Britain in 2020

I expect it will be essentially Lorraine but presented from the GMB desk. The GMB presenters will go at 9 and leave her to it

According to GMB’s Facebook, Lorraine will be joined by Piers.

NBC News, MSNBC, ABC News and others from across the pond

It's Super Tuesday in the US, and there's lots of special coverage tonight.

ABC, CBS and NBC are all live from 8-11pm ET (1-4am UK). As usual, the cable news channels are starting their coverage earlier - CNN is starting at 4pm ET (9pm UK) and MSNBC and Fox are on from 6pm ET (11pm UK).

NBC is using the studio previously used for Megyn Kelly Today as its Election HQ.

The versatility of that set just continues to amaze me. You’d hardly think, watching that, that it was originally designed for a morning talk show. The fact it’s acted as a temporary studio for so many different shows since Megan Kelly came off the air is a testament to it in itself, let alone how it’s now being used as an ‘election centre’.

Sky News | October 2019 Onwards

New CNN London studio looks great, and obviously Sky Westminster don't have the same space, but something that uses what space they do have as creatively as this would be great for the new KBaB, AAP, and SNT studio.








I won't hold my breath.

The Early Rundown started at 5am today too

To be honest I don't really get why The Early Rundown doesn't begin at 5 every day. A big selling point of the new morning line-up could have been extended morning output, and with the earliest starting breakfast show on UK TV?

Instead, it just feels like the only point in The Early Rundown is because Kay didn't want to start at 6.
